Lot 1177: Esquire's All-American Boy's Baseball Game Signed Album with Ruth & Cobb
A sort of All-Star game for Little League ballplayers nationwide, this Polo Grounds event brought the best young stars to Manhattan to play under the guidance of Major League Baseball's brightest stars. This bound volume of glossy photos picture all the boys who took part in the game, with a few pages at center that picture the men in charge. The result is essentially signed photographs of Babe Ruth, Carl Hubbell and Ty Cobb. Joe McCarthy has signed the back of a different page to round out the Hall of Fame crowd. All signatures are 10/10, and the provenance is absolutely untouchable. Condition of book is very strong and any page could easily be removed and framed to appear NRMT.
